Etsuko Saruwatari

My family name is Saruwatari.

"Saru" means "Monkey" in Japan.

"Watari" means "Crossing bridge" in Japan.

I live in Moji. The bridge conecting Kyusyu island to the main island was called "Kanmonkyo".

So, My first name means Monkey crossed Kanmonkyo!! (Maybe).

My first name is Etsuko.

"E" means "Given". (Say E like the begining of Eric.)

Tsu" has no meaning, but it is used for girls name in Japan.

Ko" means "Child" in Japan.
